The Newest Additions




The newest additions

I recently purchased my first Foley and Corinna bag featured above. I love the colour and the texture of the mohair. I got into a bad habit of using plastic bags as a wallet whenever I used a small evening bag so I finally invested in this vintage antique metal wallet from the East Side Flea Market. I'm so excited to use it!

Garance Dore & Self Service Magazine




A combination of two of my favorite things; Garance Dore and Self Service Mag in Paris.

Granville Island Market












Forget bed, this is what you're doing tomorrow. Throw on a big and cozy knit sweater, grab a green tea latte from starbucks and walk around Granville Island with your camera. The little island is one of my  absolute favourite places to visit with my camera. It's always bustling with people shopping and gawking at the splendour. I only wish I could indulge a little more often.

I've been looking for a little inspiration for an ad I have to create for school and have been getting some great inspiration from these videos here. I thought I would share them with you. I love the first one. It's a little longer than the rest but it is worth watching. Ever visual looks like a stunning picture.
